    GDT: Sabres @ Devils 6:00 PM MSG+

    Good performance by the Devils tonight. That might have been their best game among the games I’ve attended in the last 3 years or so (usually attend about 4 games per season).

    I think most teams get an attendance boost or higher demand the Friday after Thanksgiving and the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. With MLK Day, there isn’t as much of a boost because there are NFL playoff games that weekend (always on the Sunday, and sometimes on the Saturday).

    Presidents’ Day is a factor. It allowed me to make my annual trip to Newark from the DC area to see a Devils’ home game. (Kind to think of it, I think I’ve seen the Devils three years in a row on the Sunday of Presidents‘ Day weekend - in 2017 in Brooklyn against the Islanders, in 2018 in Raleigh against the Hurricanes, and tonight in Newark against the Sabres.)

    This team needs a massive brawl

    Unfortunately, the current Devils are a lot closer to the 1984 Devils.

    Well, the 2nd period was a hell of a lot more entertaining than the 1st period. With the all the good scoring chances the Devils had in the 2nd, they probably should have at least 3 goals though.

    GDT - Devils @ Capitals 11/30/18, 7:00pm

    At the game tonight, though I got home from work late and didn’t get here until a close to halfway through the 1st period. Not a good period for the guys in red and black; they were stuck in their own end too much. One good thing - I have real good seats tonight (near the top of the lower bowl in the center ice section). My girlfriend works for Geico, who is a sponsor for the Capitals.

    They changed the rule on college football kickoffs; a team can call for a fair catch on any kickoff that lands between the goal line and (I think) the 10 yard line (could be the 5 yard line, don’t remember), and get the ball advanced to the 25 yard line. The rule is meant to reduce injuries on kickoffs. (The rule is stupid IMO, and takes special teams play out of football to a greater degree, but it is what it is.)

    I was at the game, and it’s kind of sad that the period in which the Devils played the best was the one in which they were out scored by 2 goals (mind you that was because of the 2 empty-netters). They were pathetic at getting the puck out of their own zone in the first two periods. They were also terrible on faceoffs; I don’t know how many clean faceoff wins the Flyers had during the game, but it was a whole bunch. The only good thing the Devils did was block a boatload of shots; the Flyers probably should have had at least twice as many shots on goal in the first 2 periods as they actually did considering how they controlled the action. Not a good performance all-around today by the Devils excluding the blocked shots.

    I was at the game (and checking in on the Temple game from time to time - great comeback win for the Owls). There definitely was a solid Devils fan turnout, probably the best I’ve seen at a road game outside the NYC metro area (which mind you only encompasses about a dozen road games). Some of the guys at my end of the arena (upper level north end where the Devils shot twice) started “Let’s Go Devils” chants several times (and one “Rangers suck, Flyers swallow” yell) before being booed out by the Flyers fans.

    Devils home opener Thursday 10/11/2018 7:00 PM

    Count me as someone who likes the large number of weekday afternoon home games. As someone who comes from the DC area when I do go to games at The Rock, those games reduce the amount of time I can spend checking out other stuff in the NYC area, but they also allow me to get back to the DC area before the middle of the night. Also, they increase my transportation options to travel to/from games because using Greyhound or BoltBus to and from Newark Penn Station becomes a possibility, rather than only having Amtrak as an option.

    I feel the exact same way. The really bad thing about Las Vegas doing so well in their first season is that when they do go down hill, they'll lose most of their fans, an especially bad thing for that team because they are 1) not located in a hockey market, 2) located in a small market with very little secondary market population, and 3) located in a transient market where a lot of the people are originally from somewhere else and less likely to adopt the Golden Knights as their #1 team.

    That he did. His play after coming in early in Game 3 was probably the one positive to come out of this series for the Devils.

    That was a disappointing game and series, but the 2017-18 Devils have a lot to feel good about. They put the franchise back on the right track.

    Cory Schneider deserves a Purple Heart after that 2nd period.
